"From start to finish, my Fortuna coach was a great sounding board, helping me think about how to structure the thoughts and messages I wanted to put across within my applications. She was always readily available and really proactive in checking in on my progress. Her feedback was almost immediate and working with her felt like a very personalized experience. I felt she knew me inside out by the time applications were due and will always be thankful for her guidance and suggestions - no stone left unturned!"

"I enrolled with Fortuna admissions to help with my applications for INSEAD and LBS. I found their consulting service very professional and organized. My assigned coach worked with me on my applications over a period of 3 months. She was especially approachable and is a very passionate individual. She made it very easy for me to work with her, allowing flexible timings for our meetings and with a quick response time. She was very persistent in getting the best efforts out of me in terms of the right stories and in organizing and structuring the content for essays to suit the admission criteria of the school. My coach gave very honest feedback on the application and was in full control of all the aspects from resume to interview prep. Yet another positive aspect is that she went the extra mile to pull out information and reference materials that helped with the application. Overall I am very pleased with the coaching provided to me and with the services of Fortuna Consulting."

"Fortuna was absolutely integral to my success at getting into Stanford GSB. My Fortuna coach guided my MBA process from start to finish, be it in big picture thinking about the best way to frame my story to the nuts and bolts of the application itself. My coach and her team’s experience in the actual MBA admissions offices were invaluable and definitely helped me feel confident I had an insider’s view into how the process works and what traits to highlight at each school to which I applied. My coach is also a generally lovely person, and I always looked forward to our phone calls. Thank you, Fortuna!"

"I knew that I was going to apply Round 1 and that I would be on the younger side if accepted by the schools I wanted to get into. So I did my extensive research and chatted with 6 different consulting agencies before finally choosing Fortuna. What really set Fortuna apart from the other agencies is the level of care and detail that went into helping me craft my story. I come from a traditional consulting background but I was looking to make a career pivot with my MBA to go into something a lot more untraditional. My coach spent hours on the phone with me really dissecting why and how I came to the conclusion that business school is the right move at this stage of my career. Throughout the process, my coach was extremely responsive and provided strong feedback on my essays, resume, video interviews, in person interviews, recommender selection etc. Along every step of the process it became very obvious how experienced and knowledgeable she was with this entire MBA process. And because we started very early in the year, the pace was very manageable and at no time was I overwhelmed or stressed out. Ultimately I was admitted to two schools and waitlisted for my third! All top 10 programs! I'm thrilled and could not have done this without the expertise of Fortuna."

UCLA Anderson '21

"It has been a great experience working with Fortuna! With thier help along the way, I got into my dream school with a GMAT that is 20 points below the average. My coach was always very professional and went beyond her way to help me during the application process. During the six month process, we had regular communication about my concerns, rewrote my essays countless times and discussed what the best strategy was in certain situations during the process. As an ex-admission officer herself, my coach had tremendous insight into the schools that I applied to and was always willing to share these. Big thanks to Fortuna Admissions!"

INSEAD '20

"I decided to work with an admissions consultant because I wanted to be fully informed about the admissions process, and I only wanted to go through it once. I worked with Fortuna for eight months in what I found to be a very personalized process. From the start, Fortuna helped me prioritize the correct activities, which gave me confidence knowing that I was making the best use of my time. I also really appreciated how responsive Fortuna was, particularly closer to deadlines: they answered my questions almost immediately, returned edited documents within only a few hours (and sometimes even overnight), and I could schedule calls within 24h and at my preferred times."

LBS '21

"I had a great experience with the Fortuna team – I got into my top choice program and received an almost full fellowship at another M7 school. In my experience, Fortuna’s greatest strength is that they have consultants who have worked for the admissions teams of many of the top schools. As a result, there was always someone available to answer my school-specific questions in a very insightful way. Everyone I interacted with at Fortuna was professional, helpful, and reliable. My coach specifically was amazing! She did a great job perfecting my “story," coaching my recommenders, and helping me understand and articulate my goals. She seemed to know more about my story than I did and she had great ideas and edits for all my essays. My coach was very good at constructive criticism – we rewrote my HBS essay probably 50 times. She was easy to communicate with (despite being in different, and constantly changing, time zones) – she always responded within a day and scheduled meetings whenever I asked. My applications were a million times better than they would have been without Fortuna. Highly recommend!"

"Fortuna uses its intimate knowledge of the business school admissions process right from the moment they match you with a team of two admissions consultants who have once been "insiders" at your dream schools. Fortuna consultants are incredibly generous with their time and attention at every step of the process. Their help is particularly invaluable in terms of deciding one's "positioning" and the specific hook on one's essays. I will be attending Wharton this fall with an exceedingly generous scholarship!"
